abortion law. the anti-abortion law attracted national attention this summer, not just for its severity, but also because of texas democratic senator wendy davis and her 13-hour-long filibuster, which temporarily thwarted republicans' plans to pass that law. despite that filibuster and despite large protests, texas republicans did get the law passed, and governor rick perry's signature on it set in motion a countdown to texas clinics that provide abortions having to shut down. the law had been set to go into effect on tuesday of this week, so a few days ago. and a dozen clinics in the state expected to have to close their doors that day. on monday, at the eleventh hour, a federal judge stepped in and blocked the implementation of the law, saying it was unconstitutional, so the clinic stayed open. but tonight, a higher federal court, the appeals court for the conservative fifth circuit has overturned the monday ruling, which clears the way for the law to go into effect, basically, right now. this ruling, late tonight, means that a third of the facilities that provide abortions for women

in on the health care law's fate. until recently, many had not felt the impact obamacare would have on their everyday lives. but as premiums increase, paychecks fall and individuals face tax penalties in the coming months, people are rightfully outraged and they want their voices heard. >> we're going to talk about it right now with cal thomas. he's a syndicated columnist and fox news contributor. kristy setzer, the president of new heights communications and former spokesperson for former vermont governor howard dean. good to see both of you. >> hi. >> good to be here. >> cal, i'm going to start with you on this. i want to ask you, what do you think is the best move for republicans next? >> since they don't own this, arrest they will, there was not a single republican vote in congress for obamacare. i think they should get out of the way and let the full impact be felt by the american people. the initial preview of coming attractions is already out there. look, centralized government never works. it didn't work in the roman empire. it didn't work in the soviet union. both of which

president obama signed the affordable care act into law have been turbulent, period marked by relentless and unanimous resistance from the opposition to establish law, consider this. president franklin roosevelt rolled out a series of programs he designed to combat the great depression, programs to build things, grow things, establish union rights and retirement programs for some federal workers. when fdr established the new deal, he, too, was met with fierce opposition. not just from members of the other party, but from the courts. during roosevelt's first term as president, the supreme court declared parts of his program unconstitutional. naturally that did not sit well with fdr so he sent congress a bill that would give the president the authority to appoint one new supreme court justice for every sitting justice over the age of 70. since there were six justices over 70 years old back then, that would mean six new justices. presumably all of them democrats. fdr lost the new deal rulings 6-3, but on a 15-member court with six new democrats, six new fdr appointees, he probably would hav

the questions come. here to break it down is mary ellen. she's a former fbi profiler, a retired law enforcement agent with the police department. thank you for joining us. lou, on a scale of one to ten, how is the response at l.a.x. yesterday? >> exceptional. i think it's a boilerplate response now, don, regardless of where the incident takes place. it involves local agencies, federal agencies, fire, medical, air support, bomb squads. it's effective and thorough. >> what about, you know, barbara starr is reporting there were armed guards there at one point, but weren't there, had taken a break of some sort. what do you make of that? >> i can't confirm that. my experience in traveling through l.a.x. is there are always a type of post just beyond the magna tom ters that you walk through, the devices that screen you for weapons and are manned by law enforcement agency, the los angeles police department or the los angeles airport police. any report that these posts may have been abandoned, i find unusual. i never traveled through once and they were unposted. >> the suspect, quiet, a loner, what are
. as the law says and as the president made clear in the statements that you cite, if you had insurance coverage on the individual market when the affordable care act was passed into law and you liked that plan and you wanted to stay on it even though it didn't meet the minimum standards that the affordable care act would bring into place on january 1, 2014, you can keep that coverage. you're grandfathered in. that plan and your association with it are grandfathered in citizen in perpetuity. not for a year, not for five years, but forever. but what is not the case is if your insurer basically threw you off that plan by telling you after a year or two that it was changing and said here's your new option because your plan has changed, that that new plan is grandfathered in because how could that be? you can't grandfather in a plan -- >> [inaudible] >> look, it's not about fault. insurers are in the leadup to the creation of these marketplaces were doing what they'd always done. and based on the incentives that existed in the existing insurance market for individuals. the good news is that

plans before the affordable care act became law and you really liked that plan, you are able to keep it. that's what i said when i was running for office. that was part of the promise we made. but ever since the law was passed, if insurers decided to downgrade or cancel these substandard plans, what we said under the law is, you have to replace them with quality comprehensive coverage because that too was a central premise of the affordable care act from the very beginning. jon: senior white house foreign affairs correspondent bowl goal is live outside the -- wendell goler is live outside the white house. wendell. >> reporter: as you heard the president say part of the reason for obamacare to get rid of what he called substandard insurance plans sold primarily on individual market which covers 5% of the country. though the president's focus back in 2009 seemed to be expanding health insurance coverage to people who didn't have any insurance, press secretary jay carney essentially says that it makes no essential to replace no insurance with inadequate health insurance. >> no hospitalizat

showing a blatant disregard for systems and laws designed to protect the hotel. as our filings made clear, these are not victimless crimes. americans trust medications prescribed for their parents and grandparents, for their children and for themselves. they are selected because they are in the patient's best nterest. the laws enacted by congress and the enforcement efforts of the fda provide important safeguards to ensure that the drugs are proof -- are approved for uses that are safe as well as effective. efforts by drug companies to introduce their drugs into interstate commerce for unapproved uses subvert those laws. likewise, payment of kickbacks undermines the independent medical judgment of healthcare providers. it creates financial incentives to increase the use of certain drugs, potentially putting the help of some patients at risk. every time pharmaceutical companies engage in this type of conduct, they corrupt medical decisions by healthcare providers. they jeopardize the public health and they take money out of the taxpayers pockets. this settlement demonstrates that the depar
